Words of the Wise

Yesterday, on the way home from school, we were listening to Missy Higgins' song "Unbroken". At one point she sings, "Wouldn't you agree that running always slows you down?" Miguel spoke up and said, "You know mama...it's actually true that running slows you down." I agreed and was about to launch into an explanation when he talked over me and said, "Here is an example...when I run down the hallway at school, someone always stops me and tells me to go back to the end of the hall and walk. So, running actually slows me down." Yep. I couldn't have said it better myself and I was really relieved he didn't comment on the rest of the lyrics that refer to an unplanned pregnancy. We'll talk about that soon enough.
